The Museum of Musical Instruments is located in the center of Florence and is part of the Galleria dell'Accademia. Inside are preserved collections of the nearby Conservatory Luigi Cherubini. On display are about fifty musical instruments from the collections of the Medici and Lorraine dating from the seventeenth century until the first half of the twentieth century. Among these musical rarities definitely stand out the instruments purchased in the eighteenth century by Ferdinando de 'Medici, such as violins, violas and cellos. Some of the tools were made by the famous Antonio Stradivari, or figure the prized cello by Niccolò Amati of 1650. The visit is enhanced by curiosity related to music. For example, the oldest known upright piano and harpsichord by Bartolomeo Cristofori, inventor of the piano. The collection consists of paintings with representations of important personalities of the music culture. The visit is enhanced by some computers that allow you to listen to the sound of the instruments on display and get information about their history.
